Moving through the Winterberg mountains, Byron sets his sights on kudu and blesbuck. He’s guided clients into these creatures before but never shot one himself, so the anticipation is very much at a high. And as always not everything goes to plan — the kudu have developed a habit of standing tantalisingly just out of range and not presenting a good shot. The blesbuck offer a better chance, but by now, time is running out.
Also this week, we get our hands on the Remington 700 VTR, a rifle that’s instantly recognisable owing to its triangular barrel. Byron puts it through its paces and gets shooting buddy Edan in on the act too — can this rifle’s performance match its distinctive looks?
